In an age when there seems to be no such thing as over-sharing, there’s still too much embarrassment and shame about women’s pelvic issues like mummy tummy, pain or leaking. But we don’t have to suffer in silence.
Bellies, Bits and Babies is a new Babyology podcast all about women’s pelvic health that answers the questions we’re too scared to ask, hosted by physiotherapist and pelvic floor expert, Heba Shaheed.
Speaking with both experts and mums who share their own personal experiences, Heba covers everything from how to tackle the mummy tummy, lower back pain, birth plans and endometriosis.
Heba is on a mission to break the taboos surrounding women’s pelvic health, and to educate and empower women to live healthier, stronger and happier lives.
